Frédéric Bourgeois appointed Managing Director of Coface in the UK and Ireland
Frédéric will take up his new position on September 17th 2012, and Xavier Denecker will retire from Coface in mid-October.
Xavier Denecker has been the Managing Director of Coface in the UK and Ireland since November 2007. He joined Coface in 1990 as its first Communications Director, before moving to Italy as Deputy General Manager in 1997 and to Spain and Portugal as Managing Director in 2001.
Under Xavier’s stewardship, Coface in the UK and Ireland has achieved its objective of refocusing its operations on credit insurance and the implementation of a robust organisation adapted to the challenges faced by its clients in an era of economic uncertainty. Frédéric Bourgeois will consolidate these achievements. He will make sure that Coface offers British and Irish businesses, from SMEs to multinational companies and banks, the insurance they need to develop their sales in the UK, in Ireland and in the world.
